Join GATA in January in the city with the best reputation in the world: Vancouver


12:33p ET Sunday, November 18, 2012

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Cambridge House's Vancouver Resource Investment Conference, to be held Sunday and Monday, January 20 and 21, will be full of speakers who are GATA favorites, including Al Korelin of the Korelin Economic Report, Peter Grandich of the Grandich Letter, David Morgan of, Thom Calandra of the Calandra Report, David Franklin of Sprott Asset Management, Frank Holmes of U.S. Global Investors, financial letter writer Jay Taylor, proprietor Peter Spina, and financial letter writer Ron Hera.

Also speaking will be GATA Chairman Bill Murphy, GATA Board of Directors member Ed Steer, and your secretary-treasurer.

Of course hundreds of resource companies will be exhibiting as well and conference attendees will be able to talk with their executives.

Admission is free for those who register in advance, C$20 for others.

The conference will be held at the new Vancouver Convention Centre West and the conference has arranged special rates for attendees at the beautiful adjacent hotels, the Pan Pacific and Fairmont Waterfront.

GATA hopes to hold an informal fundraising cocktail party during the conference. More about that later as plans are confirmed.

For those who haven't already fallen in love with Vancouver and British Columbia, the city is about the mildest place in Canada and January there is usually only cool and damp, with the weather failing to detract from the natural beauty of the mountains and waterways. Indeed, just a few weeks ago the Reputation Institute in Denmark voted Vancouver the city with the best reputation in the world:

Of course Vancouver is also the business center of the world's mining industry, so it's really the place to be for those interested in natural resources.

Complete information about the conference, including registration, is at the Cambridge House Internet site here:

We hope to see many friends in Vancouver in January.

Opinion Around the World Is Changing
in Favor of Gold -- Find Out Why

When Deutschebank calls gold "good money" and paper "bad money". ...

When the president of the German central bank, the Bundesbank, pays tribute to gold as "a timeless classic". ...

When a leading member of the policy committee of the People's Bank of China calls the gold standard "an excellent monetary system". ...

When a CNN reporter writes in The China Post that the "gold commission" plank in the 2012 Republican platform will "reverberate around the world". ...

When the Subcommittee on Domestic Monetary Policy of the U.S. House of Representatives twice called on economist, historian, and gold standard advocate Lewis E. Lehrman to testify. ...

World opinion is changing in favor of gold.

How can you learn why and what it will mean to you?

Read the newly updated and expanded edition of Lehrman's book, "The True Gold Standard."

Financial journalist James Grant says of "The True Gold Standard": "If you have ever wondered how the world can get from here to there -- from the chaos of depreciating paper to a convertible currency worthy of our children and our grandchildren -- wonder no more. The answer, brilliantly expounded, is between these covers. America has long needed a modern Alexander Hamilton. In Lewis E. Lehrman she has finally found him."
